No take-backs.
That was the motto that Drew lived by in all things, including his love life.
He’s a player, pure and simple.
He’s learned the hard way that women aren’t all hearts and flowers. Sometimes their sexy bodies and beautiful faces are just a pretty shield to hide the crazy, and he’s so freakin’ over crazy.
Been there, done that. He has the divorce papers to prove it.
Karma hits like a bitch.
Aspen needs a break. A long one that doesn’t include anything with a Y chromosome. Not even one as tempting as her new neighbor who just moved in across the street. Men are trouble with a capital freakin’ T, and she has the ankle monitor to prove it.
The last man she gave her heart to was a police officer. A man whose life was dedicated to protection, and he was supposed to protect her heart—not break it.
She decides right then and there that she’s done with being the better person.
Everything happens for a reason.
A rash decision—undoubtedly regrettable, undeniably unforgettable. In the heat of the moment, Aspen’s actions with a tire iron and her ex-boyfriend’s brand new SUV land him in the ER getting stitches and have her seeing the inside of a jail cell for the first time.
It’s just her luck that the whole town is there to witness the result of her poor decision, including her police officer brother and the neighbor that already made it more than clear she was more trouble than she was worth.
House arrest never looked so good. 
Hide your crazy.
Drew enjoyed the show, though. For the first time in a year, he’s thinking about his life, and how it would be a lot more enjoyable with a woman like Aspen at his side.
Maybe crazy isn’t so bad after all.

I slammed my fingers down on the keyboard, insanely annoyed that I now had to tell how fun the product was, despite the fact that the person I’d had the fun with was a douche bag.

A knock sounded at my door and I turned to glare at it.

“Who is it?” I yelled.

“You know damn well who it is. It’s the same person that’s been knocking at your door for the last twelve hours,” Drew growled.

I shrugged.  

“Go away,” I ordered him.

I could hear him sigh through the door.

“In my eyes, the marriage Constance and I had was over,” he started.

I picked up the nearest thing to me, which happened to be a half finished water bottle, and then launched it at the door.

“Go away!”

He left, but not without one last parting comment.

“I still have a few things left in that box that I want to try on you. When you’re ready, let me know.”

I glared at the box he’d just spoken about, and went back to my review.
If you’re looking for a fun, awesome thing to do with your significant other, this is the thing for you. It offers many benefits; but most importantly, it gives you time with your significant other. And, might I add, it’s totally fucking worth it. I’ve used it three times in the last two days. It’s like he’s here.

On a side note, the vibrator is not very proficient. It offers about two hours of battery life before they need replaced.

Not that I used it for two hours or anything.

Oh, who am I kidding?

I would’ve used it longer if I hadn’t run out of batteries.

Lani Lynn Vale's books are always an auto read for me, and the Kilgore Fire series is quickly becoming one of my favorite series.

Oxygen Deprived is Drew's story.
Drew's been married, has a crazy ex and figures he's better off going without that dealing with that level of crazy again.
His neighbor Aspen is a special kind of crazy. She's on house arrest for unleashing her inner nutjob on her ex's truck and then him after catching him cheating. 
Everyone knows what she did, most of the town witnessed it, including the police department. So now she's stuck in her home watching neighbors for fun.
She an Drew become friends spending most evenings together, until he helps her out with a special item sent to her for review and that's when their friendship goes further.

These two are great together, he deals with her snarky attitude and they sort of balance each other out, they also go at it like rabbits regularly.
Aspen has more crap from her ex trying to screw her over while she can't leave her house to do a thing about it, and Drew has ex-wife then daughter troubles. And then there's the psycho kid down the street trying to ruin everything. 
Lots going on but it's a great read. It's sexy and funny, sweet and honest. 
One of my favorite parts is when the families get together to meet each other, you'll see what I'm talking about when you read it. 
I enjoyed hearing from characters from other books and getting inside Downy's head a bit. He needed his butt kicked but luckily he figured out how to remove his head from said butt before any damage could be done.

Drew may be my new favorite book boyfriend, he's the perfect alpha, just enough protective, just enough sweet just enough hot between the sheets. 
Another exciting and hilarious 5 star read from Ms Vale.

I’m a married mother of three. My kids are all under 5, so I can assure you that they are a handful. I’ve been with my paramedic husband now for ten years, and we’ve produced three offspring that are nothing like us. I live in the greatest state in the world, Texas.
